Prokaryotic VS Eukaryotic
Prokaryotic organisms are single-celled organisms bacteria

Eukaryotic organisms made up of lots of eukaryotic cells animals, plants, fungi

Characteristic Prokaryotic Eukaryotic
Size Smaller Larger
DNA In nucleus, linear Circular DNA free floating in
Ribosomes Smaller Larger
Flagellum Some Only sperm
Cell wall
